Protest outside Egypt’s High Court

29 Mar 2013

Hundreds of protestors gathered on Friday, March 29, outside Egypt’s High Court headquarters downtown Cairo, to participate in a protest under the motto "We are not threatened."

Protestors shouted statements against President Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood group, the general prosecutor and the supreme guide of the Brotherhood.

Protestors chained the gates of the High Court in a symbolic move and held signs demanding the “arrest and summons of the prosecutor-general.”

Protestors denounce the ‘Brotherhoodization’ of the judiciary and the summons of five opposition activists earlier this week.

The call to protest follows a decision by general prosecutor Talaat Abdullah to issue arrest warrants against four prominent “activists,” including Alaa Abdel-Fattah and Hazem Abdel-Azim. Both men have been charged with inciting violence against the Muslim Brotherhood’s headquarters in Cairo’s Moqattam district.

The protest was called for by the country’s main opposition bloc National Salvation Front (NSF) to show solidarity with political activists charged by the prosecutor-general with inciting violence during last week's clashes near the Muslim Brotherhood’s Cairo headquarters.

Some political figures and groups accuse Abdullah of having sympathies with the Muslim Brotherhood and ignoring complaints against Brotherhood officials who were accused of inciting violence during last December’s clashes outside the presidential palace in Cairo.

They are demanding the immediate dismissal of prosecutor general Talaat Abdullah, Justice Minister Ahmed Mekky and Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

Earlier this week, Cairo's Appeal Court overturned the appointment of Abdullah by President Mohamed Morsi in a highly controversial decree last November. It remains unclear whether the presidency will comply with the court order. Protestors called for the implementation of the court rule.

Egypt’s Constitution Writing Panel Af...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
16 Jul 2012

Members of Egypt’s Constitutional Writing Panel tasked with drafting Egypt’s new constitution held a press conference on Monday, July 16, at the Shura Council headquarters where they stressed that the panel respect the rulings of the judiciary and the rule of law as the court is set to rule on appeals challenging the legitimacy of the panel on July 17.
The panel spokesman Dr Wahid Abdel Meged affirmed that the panel has a neutral position from all the country’s institutions.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – The Constitution panel spokesman Dr. Wahid Abdel Meged:
“We agreed during this meeting to wait the court session tomorrow. The Constitution Writing Panel stands at the same distance from all the institutions of the country. We respect the judiciary and we don’t want to anticipate the procedures of the court that it will take tomorrow and its decisions whether it will issue a rule or delay it.”

They highlighted that the panel is not a part in the conflict between the state authorities and is very keen to respect the court rulings.
Members of the assembly affirmed earlier that the constitution panel would continue its mission by drafting a constitution and submitting it to the Egyptian people, because it is a national duty.
On the other hand, all the members of the Shura Council (Egypt’s upper house of the parliament) on the constitution panel resigned from the panel on Sunday, the Middle East News Agency reported.
The MPs said the reason for their resignation was to invalidate the argument of the administrative judiciary on the unconstitutionality of the panel and abort all appeals against it.
Earlier on Sunday, the Presidential office said that President Mohamed Morsi ratified a Law passed on June, 11 by the now-dissolved People's Assembly (Egypt’s lower house of the parliament) to regulate the process of electing members of the constitution writing panel, a law which had been ignored by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF).
Morsi's ratification of a law setting the criteria for electing members of the Constitution panel has granted it legal immunity.
The court is expected to give its final word over the legality of the panel on Tuesday, July 17.
